    For some reason I do not think I will ever be able to tie one of these on a #32 Mustad hook... Screen Shot 2017-11-21 at 9.43.11 AM.png Screen Shot 2017-11-21 at 9.42.42 AM.png

    Wow, those are small. I'm not sure I'd be able to tie a size 32, even with my young eyes! I don't know where you could buy something like that, but I have to ask: What exactly would you be trying to catch with those?

    they are "substantially larger than the images above...the tiemco #32 is a lot larger than the Mustad #32

    If you buy these flies, do they send a kid along with the order to pick them from the box and tie them on?

    Whatever you hook, the fish will look ginormous...whatever its actual size.

    Those are tiny! Personally, I wont tie anything smaller than a #22. That's just my preference. Those flies are cool to see, though!

    with my eyes, tying one of them would be a total waste of time :D

    there are very few if any materials that are proprtionate to the hook size

    I tie down to #22. But I use those Orvis Big eye hooks. #22 has a size #18 eye.
